New Infinity Two Solar Flat Marker and Cremation Product Introduced at Industry Shows

Light of Hope® introduced a new product in its solar Infinity Luminaire product line at industry shows in February and March. Designed specifically to meet the needs of the flat marker and cremation markets, Infinity Two will be available in August.

Infinity Two offers families a wider choice in cremation memorials with the addition of warm, comforting light to flat markers and other in-ground installations, in addition to use with cremation urns,” said Brad Carlson, Light of Hope® president and CEO.

“Over the last two years, we have heard over and over about the growth of cremation and increased popularity of flat markers,” Carlson said.  “And, the overwhelming interest in Infinity Two at these shows certainly reflected that demand.”

“We are very high on Infinity One,” said Ken Reeson of Summit Memorials in Canada.  “There is a strong emotional connection with having a light on a memorial that runs very deep with our families. Selling luminaires gives us the opportunity to add significantly to the perceived value of the memorials for families while increasing our average sale amount.”

Infinity Two substantially expands his market for memorial lighting, Reeson said. “Having a model that is designed specifically for those who choose cremation is critical for us because the rate is 66% in Alberta.”

Ron Bohman of Genesis Granite in Spokane WA noted that “Infinity Two is a great product, especially for cremation-intense markets” like his.  “Our families can combine three elements in a full cremation memorial package: an engraved, customized vase block or other carved stone; an in-ground urn for cremated remains; and the light, which adds comforting warmth.”

Designed, engineered and assembled in the United States, Infinity Two is intended specifically for memorialization.  It can be paired with a granite urn or round vase block and placed beside a bench, sculpture, tree, home garden or other living memorial, installed in a burial plot, along walkways, or serve as the actual memorial containing cremated remains.  Depending on solar input, Infinity Two will remain illuminated for up to 10 hours each night depending upon model, installation location and solar input.

Product highlights of the Infinity Two include:

  • Edge-lit tempered glass
  • 360º warm, halo lighting
  • Bronze cover ring bezel option (future availability)

Light of Hope® introduced the first solar light designed specifically for memorialization in late 2011.  The Infinity One enhances the natural color, luster and beauty of a wide variety of upright monuments, memorials, markers and can be mounted on flagpoles.

Both Infinity models feature:

  •      Optional cremation urn attachment
  •      Availability of custom-etching of the tempered glass
    • Two energy storage methods
      • 300,000-cycle super capacitors
      • Battery-hybrid which is best suited for shaded installations or those in northern or cloudy climates
        • adjustments for both lighting intensity and duration in hours
  • Durable materials and construction
  • 10-year replacement warranty
  • QR code which links to a family created web-based tribute
